Stabilization of Heegaard splittings

Published Web Location
No data is associated with this publication.

For each g greater than one there is a 3-manifold with two genus g Heegaard splittings that require g stabilizations to become equivalent. Previously known examples required at most one stabilization. Control of families of Heegaard surfaces is obtained through a deformation to harmonic maps.
